This weekend Aly, my creative consultant and studio roommate created this little puff box. The pony (has to be a pony, not a horse according to Aly the expert) is actually the little zebra from Melanie's set "Jumping For Joy". All I did was ink up the outline of the zebra, color her in, add a longer main and tale. Since I cut the pony out of card stock I covered it in Crystal Effects to make it a little more sturdy. The star and sentiment are also from this stamp set. The puff box is from the best die cut place in the biz, Creative Cuts and More. I used my cuttlebug to emboss the die cut before I folded it together.

Check out Melanie's blog to see the list of other great artists who have made creations with  her awesomely (is that a word??) illustrated stamp sets. Happy Blog Anniversary Melanie!

On a personal note, just wanted to wish my baby girl a happy birthday. I can't believe she is 4 years old today. Where have the last 4 years gone. Aly was 5 lbs 4 oz when she was born and so sweet and tiny. Now our big girl is a sweet petite fire cracker with a hilarious sense of humor and no fear of telling people what she wants. Happy Birthday Aly!
